Student or Learner
How should I understand the underlined sentence? Especially,
1) what are foldable partitions?
2) what's flexi-pods?
Redesigning and planning classroom physical space is thus essential in promoting a multi-faceted learning environment. Foldable partitions allow for the reconfiguration of space, as does locating flexi-pods near learning courtyards and eco-trails. These and similar conditions pertaining to flexibility and ease of access to technology, equipment and use of space all interconnect to enable new forms of teaching and learning.
(See Chapter 4 "Leadership for 21st century learning in Singapore's high-performing schools" of a report titled "Leadership for 21st century learning" published by OECD in 2013. )
(The second paragraph of p.117. Here is the link: http://www.keepeek.com/Digital-Asset...406-en#page119)
Why would it be a metaphorical meaning? It makes perfect sense to use actual, physical foldable partitions when redesigning classroom space.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
